Scott Morrison is new Australian PM as Malcolm Turnbull ousted

Australian shares edged higher on Friday, rebounding after three days of losses that saw the benchmark fall 1.5 percent. So Turnbull's decision to quit meant Morrison could not be accused of disloyalty.

Born May 13, 1968 in the beachside Sydney suburb of Bronte, Scott John Morrison was the younger of two sons, whose parents ran church youth programs.

After completing high school he went on to accomplish an honours degree in applied economic geography at the University of New South Wales. He also praised his former treasurer, saying Morrison had been loyal and effective.

He is a devout Christian who worships at a Hillsong-style Pentecostal church in Sydney.

Although he first entered Parliament in 2007, Mr. Morrison first rose to the public's attention as immigration minister and his introduction of tough asylum seeker policies alongside offshore detention centres for processing illegal arrivals.

What issues is he known for?

One of the most dramatic weeks in Australia's political history began with Turnbull's admission that he could not pass his signature energy reform - the National Energy Guarantee (Neg). A byelection would not be needed if there were an early election.

"The African tragedy is driven by war, poverty, disease, famine, corruption, injustice and an evil that is robbing generations of Africans, our fellow human beings, of their future", he said.

"We affirmed the strength of the relationship between the U.S. and Australia".

"Scott was instrumental in securing the GST deal which finally gives West Australians certainty over future GST funding", Mr Porter said.

Turnbull blamed his demise on "vengeance, personal ambition, factional feuding" in his party, led by conservative lawmakers including former prime minister Tony Abbott, the man he toppled in a party-room coup in September 2015.

What has he achieved as treasurer?

Frydenberg and Peter Costello, the longest serving Australian treasurer in the Howard government, shared a coffee at a Melbourne cafe on Saturday morning.

This week, in a bid to stave off a challenge to his leadership, Mr. Turnbull deferred legislation on national emissions reduction targets it had committed to under the Paris climate accord.

He proved out of step with most Australians previous year when he unsuccessfully campaigned against Australia legislating to allow gay marriage.
